Cottonwood Community Band, under the direction of Dr. Sy Brandon, and assistant conductor Neil Manzenberger will be presenting its annual Pops Concert for audiences in both Cottonwood and Camp Verde. The Pops program is lighter and more familiar than some of the more formal programs. You will know some of the melodies and quite possibly be tempted to dance a little bit.
The program will include a couple of marches, a Beguine, a Tango, and two medleys of melodies that will be familiar to most. Our trumpet trio will try their hand at Leroy Anderson’s “Bugler’s Holiday”, quite possibly the most famous trumpet trio ever written, and one that virtually every student of the trumpet aspires to perform. There will be a song about a very special rock located in Iowa that you might enjoy knowing about. We’ll also include a Broadway tune or two. It’ll be a program that’s almost as much fun to listen to as it is for the band to perform.
